Weekend Weddings

What beautiful weather for last weekend’s couples – fingers crossed it is a sign of things to come for the rest of the Summer.

On Saturday we made our first trip to the Elvetham Hotel, near Fleet in Hampshire – a very stately 19th century mansion set in beautifully landscaped gardens.  Whilst the ceremony took place in the Oak Room, the wedding breakfast was held in the Conservatory overlooking the grounds which was perfect for such a sunny early summer day. White Hydrangeas, pink Ranunculas and blush Roses were all combined to create arrangements very in keeping with the setting and the time of year.

Yesterday was the wedding of Chloe and Soheil at Southdowns Manor  – we are delighted to be a preferred supplier at this beautiful venue located on the Hampshire/ Sussex border. Blush pink Sweet Avalanche Roses and pale blue Delphiniums were combined with Gypsophila for Chloe’s bouquet and the table centrepieces with bouquets of just Gypsophila for her 6 Bridesmaids and the pew ends. Southdowns Manor is a complete blank canvas for couples to select any colour scheme or theme and the flowers chosen by Chloe and Soheil were perfect for both the time of year and the venue.

 

Southdowns Manor Wedding

We love these photographs sent into us by Kimberley and Josh who were recently married at Southdowns Manor, a stunning wedding venue set in the heart of the South Downs National Park on the Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex borders.

Kimberley had selected Tanacetum Daisies, Gypsophila, Craspedia and Alchemilla Mollis for all the Bouquets and Buttonholes with larger daisy style flowers being used for the Flower Girls  Headdresses and to decorate the cake.

Congratulations and every future happiness to the new Mr & Mrs Blackburn.
